Forum: movies Subject: Help in identifying a film shown at the 1964 Worlds's Fair?

At our church we are looking for a source from which to beg, borrow or steal (or buy) a copy of a film that was shown at (possibly even produced for showing at) the 1964 New York World's Fair by the National Council of Churches.

The catch is, the person who wants to use it can't remember the title, which makes it kind of hard to search for it.

Any chance this rings a bell with anyone? Or know of any places on the web that might be better to post this question? We'll really appeciate any leads on this you might be able to offer.

You are probably thinking of the 22 minute color/sound film titled "Parable" which cast a Christ like figure as a visitor to a circus where he performed acts of kindness but was ultimately "crucified". This film was produced for the National Council of Churches by Fred A. Niles Productions. Following the World's Fair, it was made available for rental on 16mm through Chirstian film libraries (like mine). We had multiple prints of it as it was very very popular. Perhaps it is available on DVD from the NCC.
